Protesters chant at Trump as he golfs in Scotland
A group of protesters gathered at President Trump’s Turnberry golf resort in Scotland on Saturday, chanting at him as he played the course.
“No Trump, no KKK, no racist USA,” the protesters could be heard chanting at Trump in a video posted by a BBC reporter.

Trump has faced widespread protests during his trip to the United Kingdom. About 250,000 people turned out on Friday for mass demonstrations against the president in London, though his schedule largely kept him away from the protests.
On Friday night, a Greenpeace activist used a paraglider to fly over Trump’s Turnberry resort while holding a banner that read “Trump: Well Below Par.”
Protesters are also hoping to fly a blimp depicting Trump as a baby over the course in Scotland after it made its debut during the London protests.
Police in Scotland have said that the blimp won’t be allowed to fly at the resort, but that they “are in discussion with the applicants about possible alternatives.”
Trump told the British tabloid The Sun in an interview published Thursday that the protests in London make him feel “unwelcome.”
“I used to love London as a city,” Trump said. “I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
